Although complaints such as dry mouth, dental problems, or difficulty in swallowing may be seen, the subjects may also be asymptomatic. The absence of the SMG may be associated with hypertrophy of the contralateral SMG. Case Report. We report the case of a 44-year-old woman(More)
The aim of this study was to identify the potential prognostic roles of the preoperative neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR), and red cell distribution width (RDW) in patients with laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC). 81 patients who underwent surgery for the larynx carcinoma were enrolled in the study. NLR, PLR and(More)
Tuberculosis of the lung bases is a rare condition that can mimic pneumonia, bronchial carcinoma, lung abscess or bronchiectasis. Diagnostic delays, that can lead to serious complications not amenable to surgical resection, are often the result of repeatedly negative bacteriological examinations. We report a series of 10 cases of tuberculosis of the lung(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated the results of patients who underwent frontal sinus obliteration with vascularized pericranial-subgaleal flap. PATIENTS AND METHODS Charts of patients (7 males 1 female; mean age 40.5+/-17.1 years; range 9 to 61 years) who underwent frontal sinus obliteration with pericranial-subgaleal flap between June 2001 and January 2008 were(More)
Rhino-orbito-cerebral mucormycosis is an acute onset and often fatal disease. Risk factors include uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, hematological malignancies, and long-term corticosteroid use.

OBJECTIVES This study aims to evaluate the possible effects of adenoidectomy on voice and speech function. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty-six children (20 boys, 16 girls; mean age 8.22±1.86 years) with adenoid hypertrophy and 50 healthy children (23 boys, 27 girls; mean age 8.54±1.92 years) were included in the study.

OBJECTIVES This study aims to analyze the correlation between biomarkers and risks of cervical lymph node invasion, recurrence, distant metastasis and survival regarding the clinicopathological variables in laryngeal cancers. PATIENTS AND METHODS Forty-one patients with laryngeal cancers were examined retrospectively. The correlations evaluated between(More)
OBJECTIVE Chronic otitis media (COM) is a disorder characterized by perforation of the eardrum and hearing loss following chronic inflammation of the middle ear cavity, ossicules, and mastoid cells. Eustachian dysfunction plays an important role in COM etiopathogenesis and postoperative prognosis. The determinants of postoperative prognosis are still being(More)
